Swiss Center for Laboratory Medicine St. Gallen presents data from Proclarix® at American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting

Schlieren and St. Gallen, Switzerland, December 10, 2020 - The Center for Laboratory Medicine in St. Gallen and Proteomedix, the Swiss cancer diagnostics company, announced that Prof. Dr. med. Wolfang Korte who leads the Center for Laboratory Medicine will present new data from the implementation of Proclarix® in their laboratory routine at AACC’s annual scientific meeting & clinical lab expo.

The first poster presentations (B-329) will demonstrate that the automation of Proclarix®, a next-generation prostate cancer test to support biopsy decision making, reveals high precision, accuracy and ease of use in real-world laboratory settings. The second poster presentations (B-330) will illustrate that the Risk Score of Proclarix® shows high reproducibility in routine use.

The following ePosters and related audio files will be available to attendees in AACC’s virtual meeting platform from December 13, 2020 to January 1, 2021:

Poster B-329: Jentsch et al. Analytical performance of automated thrombospondin-1 and cathepsin D immunoassays for prostate cancer risk assessment. Presenter: Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang Korte

Poster B-330: Turnher et al. Analytical validation of the Proclarix Risk Score for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Presenter: Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang Korte


About Proclarix®

Proclarix® is CE-IVD marked and indicated for prostate cancer diagnosis in patients with normal digital rectal exam (DRE), enlarged prostate volume and elevated levels of PSA at 2-10 ng/ml. Proclarix is a risk score combining in-vitro assays for the quantitative detection of biomarkers with a proprietary algorithm to assess a patient’s risk of having clinically significant prostate cancer. Detection of prostate cancer-related biomarkers in blood serum using the Proclarix risk score has been demonstrated in multiple clinical studies to be a reliable indicator of the presence of clinically significant prostate cancer.
